Welcome to the art of curiosity; my personal amble through the worlds of art, crafts, books & all manner of other curiosities. You'll find examples of my jewellery & art work plus an account of how I'm attempting to confound depression & my bipolarity by pursuing my creativity. There's a lot of whimsy too; my mind set is distinctly frivolous at times!

So, Dear Reader, won't you join me on my journey?

The last of summer?

Summer is over and last night saw me shed a tear as I cleaned two pairs of school shoes rather than three for Tom is at college now and no longer under the school uniform cosh. The last time I cleaned just two pairs was before Lula started school and suddenly the tears welled. And so time moves on and childrens' cherubic, kissable limbs lengthen into teenage sinewy elegance.

Aw. They get too big too fast.

They most certainly do! I wonder how many visits to the shoe shop this constitutes ;-)

Hi there, just found you via the autism group on British Mummy Bloggers and thought I'd say hello. My Nipper (who has Asperger's) has just started school so I've added a pair of shoes to the 'school shoe' pile!
